Mamo (Tib. མ་མོ་, Wyl. ma mo; Skt. mātṛ or mātṛkā) — wrathful feminine deities forming part of Ekadzati’s entourage. The mamos are considered to be among the main natural forces which may respond to human misconduct and environmental misuse by creating obstacles and disease.

There are:

  • mamos of wisdom,
  • mamos with special karma and
  • worldly mamos.

Patrul Rinpoche categorizes wordly mamos in the preta class of sentient beings.
